Abstract
VACUUM EVAPORATED SILVER HALIDE GEL-FREE PHOTOPLATES ARE N NEEDS IN SMALL QUANTITIES FOR HEALTH-RELATED ORGANIC MASS SPECTROMETRY. ALTHOUGH THIS DETECTOR HAS SIGNIFICANT TECHNI-NICAL LEVERAGE IN THE BIO-CHEMISTRY AND BIO-MEDICAL FIELDS. WHERE IT PROVIDES UNIQUE AND UNPRECEDENTED PERFORMANCE, ITS LOW VOLUME PRECLUDES VIATILITY AS A COMMERCIAL PRODUCT. SI SINCE THE RISK OF FUTURE UNAVAILIBILITY IS DEEMED IN- APPROPRIATE, WE PROPOSE A PROGRAM THAT WILL MAKE AVAILABLE TO INDIVIDUAL MASS SPECTROMETER LABORATORIES A PRACTICAL SM SMALL SCALE MODESTLY PRICED INSTRUMENT THAT WILL PRODUCE THESE PHOTOPLATES FOR THE USER AS NEEDED. IONOMET HAS THE KNOWLEDGE TO PERFORM THIS TASK, SINCE IT ORGINATED THE PLATEAND DESIGNED ITS PRESENT PRODUCTION FACILITY. PHASE I WILL EXAMINE TECHNICAL AND COST-RELATED FEASIBILITY ISSUES INCLUDING OPTIONS FOR THICKNESS CONTROL AND PLATE HANDLING UNDER VACCUM. PHASE II WILL FINALIZE A DESIGN, BU BUILD A PROTOTYPE, AND LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR PRODUCTION OF THIS EQUIPMENT. WHERAS THE PROPOSED INSTRUMENTATION PRIMARILY ADDRESSES A SPECIFIC TECHNICAL NEED RATHER THAN A COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITY, ITS PARTICULAR COATING CONFIGURATIONOFFERS COMMERCIAL PROMISE BEYOND THE IMMEDIATE NEEDS, OF MASS SPECTOMETRY. ONCE PLACED INTO THE DOMAIN OF PRODUCT AVAILIBILITY, IT HAS POTENTIAL USE IN THE SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY AS A UNIQUE TOOL FOR HIGH-THROUGHPUT UNIFORM COATI-ING OF LARGE SILICON WAFERS WITH THE HIGH-RESOLUTION NON- POLYMERIC INORGANIC PHOTORESISTS (SIMILAR TO SILVER HALIDE IN TERMS OF VACUUM EVAPORATION CONDITIONS) FOR PRINTING LARGE SCALE INTEGRATED CIRCUITS OF THE FURTURE.
